This award is especially meaningful to us for two key reasons:

First, Mashable is among the most highly-regarded social/web/tech news sources anywhere plus enjoy over 30 million views each month – of which we are several. Their clout in the industry is well-earned and we’re always pleased when they pick-up HootSuite news and share our story, and their opinions.

Secondly, the Mashable Awards (formerly Open Web) are based on community votes, which means we have our many Hoot-fans to thank for nominating and voting for us. We are truly grateful that you enjoy hooting with us. We’ll keep listening, adding new tools and continuing on this path for 2011 and beyond!

Check out some recent HootSuite mentions on the Mashable blog over the past year:

HootSuite Goes Freemium

HootSuite has just joined the ranks of websites like Flickr, Vimeo and Pandora: It’s unveiled a freemium business model that’s tiered and tailored for all kinds of users.

HootSuite Gives Groups More Twitter and Facebook Tools

For teams who use Facebook and Twitter for business or organizations purposes, HootSuite has rolled out a slew of new features for assigning and sharing tasks.

HootSuite Adds Support for Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter Lists

One of our favorite tools for the powerhouse Twitter userHootSuite — just got even better. In a massive update, the free web service has added support for Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter Lists.

Thanks for your Thoughts

Congrats to you and your team Ryan. A friend of ours first introduced us to HootSuite back at Wordcamp Phoenix 2009 we switched from TweetDeck and liked Hootsuite better right away. Cool to see the choice we made was backed by other votes than ours.

Hi HootSuite team,

First of all congrats of such a success. New year has just started and you guys are already on the way to success, thats great.

I have been using HootSuite for social media management of my personal account since 2010. It's been perfect, without any hassle, one can easily have all its social media pages on single dashboard.

Our company decided to make social presence recently; being an online marketing manager i am going to suggest them HootSuite for our corporate social media management in my next meeting with the company executives.

In short, you guys did a great job, we are really looking forward for more advanced features in HootSuite.

Thanks Guys!
